The Ibadan social circle was shut down on Friday, February 10, 2017 when the news hits the city about the demise of a popular socialite, Femi Lekuti.

The socialite who joined politics and contested for the State’s House of Assembly under the All Nigerian Peoples Party but lost some years ago has reportedly being suffering from an undisclosed ailment which paralyzed some part of his body for some time.

A source that spoke with Papermache disclosed that he was managing the sickness well and even played a major role when he buried his father in Abeokuta two weeks ago before his untimely death.

The socialite who bestrode the country’s party circuit like a colossus in the 90’s was a darling of many. He enjoyed a rare goodwill during his lifetime as the line the King of fuji beats, Wasiu Ayinde dropped for him ‘danku ara wa ni, ijinle pam pam’ still rings in the heart of his many friends and admirers.

A family source hinted that the sickness gripped him in the early hours of Friday, February 10th 2017 and he was first rushed to Oke Ado hospital, Ibadan before he was later transferred to the University College Hospital where he was pronounced BID(Brought-in-Dead).
